Mayfly : Rust Parachute
021118_11 (1).jpg

This is a traditional and ordinary mayfly parachute pattern that you can change in a lot of different sizes and colors. 

With this pattern you can imitate almost every mayfly you want, in the dun stage

Hook : Ahrex FW502 Dry Fly Light #10-20

Tying Thread : Semperfli Classic Waxed thread 12/0, Rust

Tail : Fibetts (4 pcs)

Body : Semperfli Superfine Dubbing, Rust

Wing : Semperfli Poly-Yarn, Iron Blue

Hackle : Whiting, Grey Dun Cape

Instead of using fibetts in the tail, many fly tyers use feathers like Coq De Leon or fibers from a larger rooster feather. It works well and maybe even better than fibetts, thought about the fishing. But it doesn`t look so good as fibetts
